If you see a crying child by the road.


I received the below from a friends of mine…and it’s largely an urban rumor.

This is from a County Sheriffs Department, please read this message very carefully .

This message is for any lady who goes to work, college or school or even driving or walking the streets alone.  If you find a young person crying on the road showing you their address and is asking you to take them to that address… take that child to the POLICE STATION ! !

No matter what you do, DON’T go to that address. This is a new way for gang members to rape women. 

 Please forward this message to all ladies & guys so that they can inform their sisters & friends and family.

Our 1 message may save a life. Published by CNN & FOX NEWS (Please circulate)..**Please DO NOT IGNORE ! Thank you

Here are the facts

After I received this message, I talked to a member of law enforcement, and he said that this has possible happened as many urban legends, like the person in the back seat.  Therefore it, use wisdom in any situation.

Now if you happen to see a crying child on the side of the road… Call Law enforcement and let them handle it.

Halloween Safety Tips


Halloween is a time for enjoyment…not harm!

At PepperEyes, we believe your personal safety and protection plan should include a variety of knowledge, tools and techniques to keep you and your loved ones safe year round. Whether you’re a single, a young professional, or the head of your household – the best plan is one that evolves and is practiced over time and improves as new strategies and tools come on the market.

This Halloween, make sure your family’s experience is full of treats, not tricks, with these Top Halloween Safety Tips to include in your personal protection plan:

  1. Be Car Aware – Car accidents involving pedestrians see a sharp spike every Halloween – do not become a statistic! Make sure everyone is always looking both ways before crossing the street (hand-holding recommended but not required).
    1. Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.
    2. Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.
    3. Watch for cars that are turning or backing up. Teach children to never dart out into the street or cross between parked cars
  1. Adult Avoid Driving During Peak Trick-or-Treating Times – On the same note, play it cool for the night and stay off the road for a few hours while the little creatures roam. Pedestrian traffic and drunk-driving numbers are at an all-time high on Halloween night.
    1. Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.
    2. Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
    3. Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. so be especially alert for kids during those hours.
  2. Keep Eye on Road, not your phone  – Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.
  3. Stay in Familiar Areas – Children under the age of 12 should not be alone at night without adult supervision. If kids are mature enough to be out without supervision, they should stick to familiar areas that are well lit and trick-or-treat in groups.
  4. Stick Together – Nobody wants to go looking for a missing Princess in the middle of the Halloween party, so keep an eye on your friends.
  5. Keep the Tricks to a Minimum – Not everyone shares the same Halloween spirit, so don’t turn your night of fun into a night of fright. Understand the dangers of “harmless” pranks like egging, ding-dong ditching, and scaring innocent trick-or-treaters. Your safety my depend on common sense.

Keep Costumes Both Creative and Safe

  • Decorate costumes and bags with reflective tape or stickers and, if possible, choose light colors.
  • Choose face paint and makeup whenever possible instead of masks, which can obstruct a child’s vision.
  • Have kids carry glow sticks or flashlights to help them see and be seen by drivers.
  • Do not use decorative contact lenses without an eye examination and a prescription from an eye care professional. While the packaging on decorative lenses will often make claims such as “one size fits all,” or “no need to see an eye specialist,” obtaining decorative contact lenses without a prescription is both dangerous and illegal. This can cause pain, inflammation, and serious eye disorders and infections, which may lead to permanent vision loss.
  • Review with children how to call 9-1-1 (or their local emergency number) if they ever have an emergency or become lost.

Keep your Pets Safe

  • Keep your pet away from the front door – Dogs in particular need to protect their home and may bite bizarre looking visitors or become frightened.
  • Ensure decorations cannot be pulled down – Your pets can become injured or entangled in your holiday and cause harm to themselves in their panic to get free.
  • Do not take your pet with you in the care while your child(ren) are trick-or-treating – Scarry creatures of every size and shape walking by the car may be very frightening to your pet sitting in a dark car. Your friendly pet may become not-so-friendly.
  • Do not give your pet candy – certain treats like chocolate, caramel apples, or other chemicals can be lethal to your pet.
  • Keep your pet in a safe location – There are lots of stories of vicious pranksters who have teased, injured or stolen pets in their yard or have freed them to roam outside at night.

September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month


September is National Campus Safety Awareness Month (NCSAM) and people  on your

Prevention is Possible

Prevention is Possible

campus is thinking about campus safety – the media, parents, students, and especially the higher education professionals working to create healthy and safe campus environments each and every single day.

 Although  the nightly news can capture the best – and worst – of the field, there’s one thing  PepperEyes.com  knows to be true: people don’t function well in fear and ignorance; individuals make the best decisions when they are well informed and well prepared, and offered support, and are confident in their knowledge and skills

 This Blog has LOTS of Tips and how tooo…

 As part of National Campus Safety Awareness Month, We want everyone to make Crime Prevention part of their everyday life on or off campus.

It begins with protecting yourself:

  • If at all possible, never walk alone
  • Stay alert at all times – especially when you are on your phone.
  • If you have to walk alone, walk on well-lighted, well-traveled walkways and plan your route ahead.
  • Avoid walking between parked cars, overgrown shrubs, and dark passageways.
  • If your college has a RAD Class…take it every semester. Repetition makes it better.
  • Carry Pepper Spray or a Stun Gun
  • You are ultimately responsible for your safety and securing your valuables.

Preventing thefts from your vehicles:

  • Always lock the doors and leave the windows rolled up
  • Keep your valuables (especially your electronics) out of sight
  • Do not leave money, checkbooks or credit cards in vehicle at anytime
  • Put your valuables in your trunk or well hidden
  • Do not leave your firearms visible in your vehicle

Preventing thefts from your residence:

  • Make your home look occupied, and make it difficult to break in.
  • Lock all outside doors and windows before you leave the house or go to bed. Even if it is for a short time, lock your doors.
  • Leave lights on when you go out. If you are going to be away for a length of time, connect some lamps to automatic timers to turn them on in the evening and off during the day.
  • Keep your garage door closed and locked.
  • Arrange for your lawn to be mowed if you are going away for an extended time.
  • Check your locks on doors and windows and replace them with secure devices  as necessary
  • If you have an alarm system use it, if you don’t have one, consider getting at least a door alarm.

The most important thing you can do is call the police to report a crime or any suspicious activity. You have to be the eyes of your neighborhood. And remember you can always remain a pair of anonymous eyes.

Running and Jogging Safety, Don’t Forget Your Pepper Spray


What are good ways to avoid trouble when I’m jogging, even if I carry pepper spray?

Here are some tips that will make you a harder target for sexual assaults, muggers and rapist:

  • Pay Attention to everyone, everywhere!
  • Avoid running/jogging at night, definitely avoid Friday and Saturday nights.
  • If possible never run alone. There are far too many drunken young men driving around just looking for trouble.
  • If practical, jog in the early morning. Most rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswoggles, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shot-kickers, scumbags, deadbeats, and slugs, will still be in bed.
  • You may like music when you run, try not plugging both ears
  • If you see people ahead who look like trouble or you get a bad feeling, swallow your pride and take a safe detour, or turn around and retrace your course.
  • Be aware of hiding places and blind corners.
  • Carry pepper spray
